COVID-19: CAN Reveals When Churches Are Likely To Reopen


The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has confidently disclosed that the ban on religious activities in the country could end by the first Sunday of June.

This was revealed in a statement signed by CAN President, Rev Samson Ayokunle, on Wednesday.

The president stressed that they have been in talks with the federal government over the measures to be put in place.

“We are in discussions with the Federal Government and are drawing the guidelines that churches would follow in order not to endanger the life of any worshipper and equally prevent COVID-19 infection."

“We are hopeful that latest by the first Sunday in June, all our churches would open again for congregational worship under COVID-19 prevention regulations. As I said before, we are consulting with the government on this.”

He further appealed the government not to have fear in reopening religious centres, as they are more organized than markets and banks.
